Today I found myself driving the highways around
Pittsfield, Massachusetts, in the Berkshire mountains
(which are in line with the Appalachians),
in the west of the state,
near the state line with New York.

Obviously their winter has been colder than the winter season
where I live.
Around my hometown, it has been a rainy winter.
But in the central piece of Berkshire County,
there is frozen snow around the roads, ice underfoot.
Today is an uncommonly warm dry day, especially for Pittsfield in winter,
and it is MUD SEASON underfoot with
a blindingly blue sky overhead straight out of New Mexico's high mountain desert horizons.

Carambolage! Ay caramba!

the story says that the cause of all those motor vehicles
crashing into each other
was not the road surface,
but the white-out/zero-visibility conditions.
There was no storm happening at the time,
conditions were clear in the surrounding countryside;
but this one stretch of highway is notorious
for blowing snow and wind.

We have had summer temperatures this week.
There has been no winter.
This is our winter of
disrepute.

The strangest conspiracy theory is that the coronavirus has mutated to infect elections.
In Iowa, the election results for Democrats is ERROR 404
The Republican results are a earthquake tsunami landslide for Trump,

615 - 2020 electoral college delegate votes for President - Trump
321 - for unknown.

Clearly elections are very ill.

Hrothgar, you can have all our rain with pleasure! The fields in our village are still quite flooded and the farmer has been keeping his stock in the stockyard (producing tons of slurry!) The river Wensum is nearly over the banks, and our little village bridge is only about two inches above the waterline. Our garden is producing liberal amounts of moss.
At least it's not all that cold (about 10 degrees Celsius)

"In the winter of our discontent when a man unprincipled in private life, desperate in his fortune, bold in his tenper, possessed of some talents, having the example of military nazi habits - despotic in his ordinary demeanor - known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty - when such a man is seen to mount the porn queen of popularity - to join in the cry of danger to liberty - to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government and bringing it under suspicion - when right doesn't matter to elected people - to flatter and fall in with all the nonsense of the zealots of the day - when no one in his party casts a profile of courage - it may justly be suspected that his object is to throw things into confusion and division that he may 'ride the storm and direct the whirlwind'"

New discoveries in space may surpass everything this winter.
Space is mostly space and is the perfect place to show off
the season of dying, revealing life's challenging long wait
to finally find the antidote to the emptiness of existence.
Living
More than a google of frozen rocks astroids comets and planets
harbor the seeds of life for their long wait to wake up with
a consciousness vast or slow, big or tall, hot or old, all
feeling a glimmer or giant glompse of the universal word "WOW"
Loving
Somethingness gradually pushes out the nothingesque at its peak.
Its not complete until it finds the past present and the possible
future path to sharing life before nothing resumes its slow return.
Lookin at you kid, you are like all life celebrating the great unknown

Well keberoxu, you may regret your comments, as here is the full ouevre, written by my late lamented friend Ursula Wadey.

Spooner Rides Again

Winter's here with bracks and mollies,
Fist and mog on ricey woads,
Up the hills the litter grollies
Speak to shred their useful loads
Flannel cherries seem uncertain'
Guaging rails have caused delay,
Turn the heat up, draw the curtains,
Home, sweet home is best today.

Slow and sneat and poggy fatches,
Rip your deadlights, choose your yolk,
Torn out wire too often catches,
Winning spiels can be no joke,
Do you KNOW your schooling kissed 'em?
Haughty noses sometimes drip;
Puggish slump and slapping piston,
Might succumb to Arctic nip.

Take your breasts and brave a shakedown,
Watch for letter when it's wit.
Lift your killer flap with caution'
Bums from pobs might score a hit.
Fullidge Wherry closed this morning,
Billy Visity is poor,
Par Cark's full, I give due warning'
Do take care to dock your lore.

As for windscreen bosher wattles,
You may find these friends to tea,
While, alas, the normal throttles,
Don't respond to tots of pee.
You may meet the treason's stubble'
Only if your rules are tight'
Let your diligence rebubble;
Day in stores, you'll be all right.

A couple of days ago we had 12 degrees Celsius and bright sunshine. The wood pigeons and great tits started piping up, thinking Spring had arrived. Buds appeared on our honeysuckle. I got rather worried, as Nature is thoroughly confused.
Now it's down to 6 degrees with a very chilly wind, and freezing temperatures are forecast over the weekend.
The climate is completely up the creek isn't it?

Life is interesting on the freezing-temp line.
A bit of a razor's edge.
During daylight hours, heaven be thanked,
it was safe enough to be out driving about.
But as soon as sunset approached,
the most imperative thing was
to get home, get the car safely put where it spends the night,
and get inside, warm and dry,
before today's rain and slush re-freezes.

At least there will be less precip here tomorrow.

How did everybody in Northern New England

We've had so much rain over the last few weeks, it's getting scary.
Our local river (the Wensum) and the lakes and pools are overflowing.
Crops are starting to rot in the saturated land.
I fear for the wildlife (apart from all the waterfowl of course, who are loving it!)
The wind has been so strong our external TV aerial on the chimney stack has been dislodged and the signal is ropey. A chap is coming this weekend to attach it a bit more firmly.
What's really getting me down is the darkness and lack of sunlight. Very depressing...

Southwestern Ontario is easing gently into winter, after a really nasty Remembrance Day. The sky is blue today and most of the snow has melted again. The squirrels are out of bed and fossicking around in the snow, looking for my expensive tulip bulbs, I bet.

But it's plenty cold once the sun goes down.

Tonight the Stratford Concert Choir sings Handel's "Messiah" in a mid-Victorian church that happens to be the largest indoor space in town that is not the Festival Theatre or a hockey arena. The draft from the transept door, which blasts across the orchestra and the front rows of the choir, would freeze the balls off a brass monkey. Most members of the Soprano and Alto sections augment their performance outfits (long black gown, strand of pearls) with sweaters and skiing underwear, but the memo seems not to have reached the orchestra. Last night at the dress rehearsal, the fourth desk violin and viola were obviously shuddering. The men, of course, do just fine in their dinner jackets. Damn them.
